Tidal energy is positioned as one of the technologies with which the electricity mix can be diversified to overcome several of the energy transition challenges. By introducing tidal energy into the electricity mix, the security of supply is affected positively. This is due to the predictability, flexibility, high availability, and robustness of tidal energy. Tidal energy is a global resource representing an estimated potential between 160 – 810 GW capable of providing up to 5% of global electrical demand.
